Target-setting method details
Linear trend fitted using ordinary least squares and a projection at the 50 percent prediction interval.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were evaluated for this objective. Using historical data points, a trend line was fitted using ordinary least squares, and the trend was projected into the next decade. This method was used because three or more comparable data points were available, the projected value was within the range of possible values, and a projection at the 50 percent prediction interval was selected because it reflected a modest improvement over the decade, consistent with the slow, steady improvement observed over the last decade.
Comparable HP2020 objective
Retained, which includes core objectives that are continuing from HP2020 with no change in measurement.
